Best of Our Blogs: June 8, 2010

As a past student therapist and a friend, I’ve noticed a trend — a sad, and unexpected obsession with perfection. Could this change in perspective and sudden focus be the result of a societal shift? And more importantly, when did attaining perfection become possible?

It saddens me to hear that being less than perfect mothers, friends, children, siblings, partners, employees, etc. makes us less of a person. When in reality, self-love and self-acceptance for our flaws are more realistic, attainable and favorable goals. Perhaps the summer of 2010 could be the summer we work towards that instead. Let’s dump shame and self-loathing and embrace our whole, yet less than perfect selves.
